Example code : Split PDF using PyPDF2 (python)


  • Very simple example code
  • ref : https://pypdf2.readthedocs.io/en/3.0.0/
* install 
  >> pip install PyPDF2 

*sample src: sample pdf has 38 pages.

12 files are generated and each file has three pages.

this code uses fixed file count number because I already know page count, 

but you can use "len(src_pdf.pages)" to get page count of source file.

from PyPDF2 import PdfFileReader, PdfFileWriter

src_pdf = PdfFileReader(open("./src.pdf'))

for file_index in range(12): # <= len(src_pdf.pages)/3
writer = PdfFileWriter()
for page_index in range(3):
writer.write(open("./out-{:02}.pdf".format(file_index), 'wb'))

== ver 3.0.1 
generate single page
from PyPDF2 import PdfReader, PdfWriter

src_pdf = PdfReader("./multi-page.pdf")
number_of_pages = len(src_pdf.pages)
writer = PdfWriter()

for idx in range(number_of_pages):
    writer.write(open(f"./single-page-{idx}.pdf", 'wb'))
